The AeroTrain replaced most of the current Mobile Lounge system that were used to transport passengers between the Main Terminal and the Midfield Concourses. The train operates on an underground dual track system. The AeroTrain carries passengers between the Main Terminal and the A, B, and C-Gates. The stations are located at convenient points along the concourses to minimize walking distances to the airline gates. AeroTrain opened to passengers on January 26, 2010.
